Jon Voight Knows His Stuff
Surrounded by reporters shouting questions, actor Jon Voight puts his cell phone to his ear and says, “Hi, Angie, what’s going on?” After a short pause, he continues. “I’m really busy right now. How about I call you tomorrow morning?” As he repockets his phone, he smiles at one of the reporters he seems to know. “You believe that was really Angie?” he asks, referring to his daughter Angelina Jolie.
All kidding aside, Voight is a super star in his own right. Known (by kids) for his roles in the National Treasure and Transformer movies, Voight is a staunch—and knowledgeable Republican—who always stops to talk to the Scholastic Kid Reporters. Shelby Fallin interviewed him several times in 2008 when he was campaigning for former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Topanga Sena had a few questions ready for him about the 2012 election.
